24 NOVEMBER 2016 / Inauguration event at the General Hospital of Athens “Korgialenio – Benakio” with the SNF support

On Monday, November 21st the inauguration event for the SNF grant towards the General Hospital of Athens “Korgialenio – Benakio” took place. The grant includes the acquisition of the new modern CT scanner and the renovation of the surrounding area of the Radiology Department.

The purchase of the new scanner replaces the existing 20-years old equipment and upgrades the medical services delivered to the patients. The new CT scanner is expected to  perform more than 15,000 scans per year providing high quality services with reduced exposure time. The Radiology Department of the General Hospital of Athens “Korgialenio – Benakio” is one of the few public hospitals in Greece that are able to perform interventional radiology procedures and for that reason the new CT was fully equipped with the required software.

The event was attended by representatives of the Ministry of Health, hospital administration, the President of the Hellenic Red Cross, as well as representatives of the scientific community and the SNF.
